Raton, New Mexico to Meteor Crater, Arizona
This was a long travel day, about 10 hours, from the north
central part of New Mexico, all the way through that state, to
the northeastern area of Arizona.
Below is Santa Fe, New Mexico. Truthfully, I thought it
would be more impressive. Maybe I missed something????
If you drive from east to west, or west to east in the West,
you're likely to cross the Continental Divide. The
Continental Divide is the line where rivers go either to the
Pacific, or to the Gulf of Mexico. In some places, the
Continental Divide is spectacular. Other places, like in
New Mexico, it's not much.
And here it is.
Nice, for freeway scenery.
This is Eastern Arizona, just west of Winslow. In
the distance are the San Francisco Mountains of Flagstaff.
My destination for this evening is Meteor Crater, which is off
to the left in this photo.
Tomorrow, a huge hole in the desert!
